Red Griffin was formed in 1997 to allow people with a love for Renaissance and Medieval fairs the opportunity to perform and explore their talents, at the various venues in the Oklahoma area. Many of our members have careers and educational pursuits that occupy the majority of their lives, but our organization provides them the opportunity to take time out and to escape the daily drudgery of life. Bringing smiles to the faces of many as they exercise their talents in Singing, Dancing and Dramatic Interaction.
Red Griffin has had exposure through many venues, supporting or directing other organizations from southern Texas to Kansas from central Oklahoma to western Arkansas. Our members have preformed as Kings and Queens, knights of the jousts, dancers, gypsies and town folk. No matter what part is played our members strive to provide rich texture and a medieval feel to any venue we perform at. Away from fairs we have involved ourselves with educational activities and civic groups.
Red Griffin has an infrastructure that coordinates costuming, training, and equipping of its participants with a emphasis on accuracy and an eye towards public appeal and customer input. The organization strives towards a high degree of excellence in entertainment providing the best show possible.
The intent of the members of our company is not to support ourselves with our performing activities, but to support our hobby if and when possible. We perform for the sheer love of the show and the magic it instills.
